It gives you the Willys. What's in a name?

Of course, I was thinking just where did this phrase come from; which then made me consider the Willys cars and Jeeps. The first car I drove was a Willys jeep at my Dad's farm building construction company. I was about 10. The foreman for the construction crew asked me to jump in and move the Jeep. "Just pop the damn clutch and go," I remember him blaring. Another worker jumped in, helped me out. Fifteen feet later I stopped, grinning over the fear that this little ride had given me, and thought "Wow, that sure gave me the Willys!" ;-).
There is a great Wiilys 1941 coupe on Motortopia. The pic with the law enforcement will give you a fright...the Willys too!
Have a great day! Leave your comments here about some car experience that gave you "The Willys!"
Here are some other WIllys on Motortopia:
and this one that BigNutty just commeted about:
P.S. I had one earlier experience driving when I was about 3, but that is for another story.
